tells you:
figs: A two-element vector describing the number of rows and the
number of columns in a screen matrix _or_ a matrix with 4
columns. If a matrix, then each row describes a screen with
values for the left, right, bottom, and top of the screen (in
that order) in NDC units, that is 0 at the lower left coner
- so by passing a matrix you can put plots anywhere, not just split
the whole thing into boxes.
Here's an example, which with a bit of tweaking, might work for you:
> fm=rbind(c(0,.4,.6,.9),c(.6,.9,.6,.9),c(.3,.8,.1,.4))
> fm
[,1] [,2] [,3] [,4]
[1,] 0.0 0.4 0.6 0.9
[2,] 0.6 0.9 0.6 0.9
[3,] 0.3 0.8 0.1 0.4
each row of fm is (left, right, bottom, top) as a fraction of the
whole device.

I've left some space around that you might want to get rid of. Its 90%
there.
